Last month, TOS delivered five vessels in a single joint voyage for PSA, the leading global port group from Singapore. ‘Captain Chowdhury Faroque Hossein and Er Chor Meng welcomed us at the PSA office*. Together with the five TOS Captains and Chief Engineers, we met and discussed all outstanding actions that had to be arranged before the departure of all Summits,’ says Myron Dam, Superintendent at TOS.
five vessels simultaneously
‘In the history of TOS, it was the first time we delivered five vessels simultaneously. It was quite an amazing job. Together with our client PSA, the new PSA crew, five Captains and Chief Engineers from TOS, we prepared the ship deliveries. In total, we delivered three ASD tug boats, one offshore support vessel and one fast crew boat. All vessels are new builds and headed for their new home port: Chittagong, Bangladesh. The crew received a warm welcome upon arrival. We are very proud of the smooth and pleasant cooperation and the proper and professional preparation. And I would like to thank all of the people involved in executing this record-breaking delivery!’

SUPERINTENDENT WITH SEA LEGS
Myron Dam, Superintendent at TOS: ‘I have always greatly enjoyed sailing as an Officer. The dredging project in Indonesia was especially impressive: the construction of a new container terminal. Now, working on shore brings all great aspects of the maritime world together. The work is very diverse. You prepare the ship delivery from the office and then fly to the location to work with the crew to prepare the vessel for departure. During the voyage, you are in contact with the crew and the client. You’re involved in everything from A to Z, from bunkering right up to sending the final invoices and finishing the job together. I’ve learned a lot from colleagues about the ISM/ISPS/MLC procedures and I just like the challenge. Every project and every vessel is different. It’s a great feeling to overcome obstacles and fix problems with the client and the crew.’

YOUR DESTINATION IS OUR CHALLENGE
We are experienced in the relocation of all types of vessels. For an all-in price and with clear terms and conditions, we can take care of flag state registration, certification, ISM and instruction of the new crew in preparation of handing over the vessel.
